Good morning!! Yes, we are up bright and early here – I have to head into work shortly and I wanted to finish up the laundry so I was not stuck doing that for the remainder of the day! This is the best time of the day – it is quiet, I can sip my coffee, catch up on my blog reading and enjoy the start of the day.
It has been a strange week, both with the weather and with work. I am more than ready for the weekend!
There are more trees with vibrant leaves – fall is definately upon us. The storm did manage to de-foliate quite a few trees, there are still enough left with their fall attire proudly displayed.
I had dinner with some friends last night and after dinner I walked downtown with Mary – we stopped in to Loker’s Shoe to see what was in the bargain basement. I found a GREAT bargin indeed. Some very chic cowboy boots – for $25.00! Yes, you read that right – $25.00. I may be looking for a hoe down this weekend to wear them to!
I really want to take a drive to view the colors this weekend, but I am not sure that will be accomplished. There is homework to follow up on, housework to finish, and parents to check in on.
Aging parents can be quite a challenge! Especially when neither one lives next door! My mom has had some health struggles recently, and she is not a good patient! Having been a nurse for her entire life – she could write the book on how to be a bad patient! Well, I would say, and I think my sister might agree, that Mom could win the prize for not listening to what the doctor says! I have been tossing the idea around in my head to move her in with me…. I just don’t know where we’d put her!! So, for the time being, I am grateful that my work brings me to Grand Haven multiple times during the week – it makes it convenient to stop at lunch and after work to check up on her.
I had better get moving – have a great weekend everyone!
